lyrics

When the needle came to stay
The haystack took her in his arms
And he promised she could sleep
Forever in his golden arms

When the needle came to stay
The magpie shuddered in the frost
Cause she knew that fate had come
And that needle would be lost

When the needle came to stay
The haystack told her she was fine
That she’d have nothing to fear
And that trust would come in time

When the needle came to stay
She lost herself into the mire
When she dreamed of being free
The haystack built a ring of fire

And she cried hey

When the needles cries were heard
The rain came down and killed the fire
And the magpie saw the glint
Of the needle in the mire

Then the needle soon was free
The magpie set her down to rest
And they danced around the hay
That had slowly turned to dust

And they cried hey
